\X7E are slowly emerging from a period of sterile 
imitation in the decorative arts. Creative 
work is being done and patterns bearing a relation 
to our own times and needs are being evolved. 
The result is a new type of design which bids fair 
to form a modern decorative style. A few ex- 
amples — all based on established principles of 
design but in keeping with the new style — have been 
assembled in Gallery II, where they will be on view 
during the month of May. These include French 
glass by Maurice Marinot, metalwork by Claude 
Linossier, bookbinding by Pierre Legrain, textiles 
by Raoul Dufy, Swedish glass by Simon Gate, 
and American pottery by Henry Varnum Poor, as 
well as some interesting American and German 
textiles and porcelains made in Italy. 

The Museum is particularly indebted to those 
who have kindly lent pieces for the exhibition. 
Their names appear on the labels.
